Student Helpers and visitor at Tram Stop, Open Day 2018, University Park

We have cancelled our open days in June, due to the ongoing coronavirus situation. This is to ensure the safety of our visitors, staff and students as well as help limit the spread of COVID-19.

Open days are still scheduled to take place on:

  • Friday 11 September 2020
  • Saturday 12 September 2020

We continue to review the situation and will share any updates as soon as they become available. 

Virtual alternative

We are currently organising a virtual alternative to our undergraduate open days.

This will allow you to find out more about the University, our courses, campuses and the people who make it great – our staff and students.

Whether you're travelling by car, bus or train, getting to our open days and between campuses is easy - and you'll be welcomed by our staff and student helpers.

Due to parking restrictions, all visitors to University Park and Jubilee Campuses should travel to University Park Campus.

Car parking

Free parking (including parking for blue badge holders), is available at University Park Campus. Blue badge holders are also able to park at Jubilee Campus, which is very close to University Park. Free shuttle buses run between these two campuses all day, and it is only a 15-minute walk between them. When you arrive on campus, security staff will direct you to the nearest available parking.

For designated blue badge car parking, please ask our security staff on arrival and they will direct you.

Car - Sutton Bonington Campus

If you're travelling by car, you can make your way directly to Sutton Bonington Campus where free car parking is available. On arrival follow directions to open day car parking.




For University Park and Jubilee Campuses, book a train to Nottingham railway station.

For Sutton Bonington Campus, book a train to Loughborough railway station.

Staff and students in blue t-shirts will be at both train stations to direct you to the free shuttle buses to the campuses. These run from 8am to 5.45pm. From Nottingham railway station, you can also take the Toton Lane tram to reach the University Park Campus south entrance.

Park and ride

The University area of the city is easy to reach using the Nottingham tram network and this can help you avoid traffic queues on the day.

Toton Lane park and ride is close to the M1 and the tram runs directly to University Park Campus from there.

You can purchase a group ticket for £5 for unlimited city travel as well, or return tram travel costs just £2 with an ‘event ticket’. Have your open day booking confirmation ready for checking on board the tram as proof that you will be attending this event.

Inter-campus shuttle bus

Free shuttle buses are available to take you between campuses throughout the day – helping you get to the next activity easily.

A free hop-on-hop-off shuttle bus also runs in a loop around University Park Campus.
